We approximate and effectively simulate different characteristic patterns of a drum vibration using algebraic surfaces.

We visualize simple geometric beauty combined with mathematical content. Please enjoy.

In March 1926, four young men did not return from a mountain hike at the Aletsch Glacier. It was not until 2012 that their remains were found. This film explains how scientists reconstructed the...

Analogous to Henri Poincaré’s concept of dodecahedral space the epita_dodecahedron allows to visualize the principle of the counter-movements of the opposite polyhedra E+ instead of the...

Using color and movement, this video rigorously explains what a translation surface is, and the theorem about translation surfaces that I proved in my Ph. D. thesis...

Un paseo por un politopo quiral de dimensión pequeña.

Nudos salvajes

The official release of Ulliroyal’s song November Rhapsody...

AnimaSurfer is an artistic animation made for the Formas & Fórmulas exhibition (Portugal 2012 - 2013).

A journey through the mathematical theory of braids.

A two hour film on dynamical systems: see www.chaos-math.org

Relationship between mathematics and astronomy goes back in time. An analysis, though superficial, of a few episodes in the history of Mathematics shows how this science is actually fundamental to...

Alpine glaciers have been shrinking for more than one century. This trend is expected to continue if the global warming progresses. This film shows how mathematicians and glaciologists work...

One of the main goals of wave propagation numerical modeling is to describe some earthquake phenomena as close as possible. The role of numerical wave propagation simulations is not to predict...

Beneath the sea surface, there exists a vast network of ocean currents, which, like gigantic conveyor belts, transport huge water volumes. Although the real map of these currents is extremely...

The film The Convertible House represents a virtual floor plan of house that can change its layout to accustom itself to different weather and environmental conditions. Depending on the actual...

Nine chapters, two hours of maths, that take you gradually up to the fourth dimension. Mathematical vertigo guaranteed!

The Berlin Underground features nine lines that meet in 19 transfer stations. How to compute a periodic timetable that minimizes the total waiting time of all the passengers in this network, while...
